The American Federation of Teachers has reaffirmed its support for the faculty of City College of San Francisco, represented by AFT Local 2121, and the entire CCSF community in their effort to restore accreditation. The resolution was adopted at the July 20 AFT Executive Council meeting.

The AFT recognizes the important educational role CCSF has played in the Bay Area and decries the irresponsible actions of the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges (ACCJC) in revoking City College’s accreditation.

The AFT and CFT will continue to work with our sisters and brothers in AFT Local 2121 and others to maintain City College as a vital part of our state’s higher education community providing a comprehensive academic program while respecting the essential role of the men and women who work in and out of the classroom at CCSF.
